The Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are seemingly slowly beginning to accept the fact that they may see Philippe Coutinho depart the club this month. Indeed, after staving off interest from Barcelona over the course of the summer, it seems the tide is turning on Merseyside.
While losing the brilliant Brazilian samba star earlier this season may have been a scary notion, the form of the Reds’ wonderfully devastating front line has had our local Liverpudlians believing they could be better off without the midfielder.
With that in mind, the collective thoughts of our punters have been turning toward potential replacements. As you can imagine, a whole host of names have been mentioned by our locals and recent comments from Anfield legend John Aldridge have provided some interesting food for thought.
He believes the Reds should make a move for Alexis Sanchez, who looks destined to leave Arsenal amid their failed attempts to hand him a new contract. Though he’s been linked with a move to Manchester City, the notion of him moving up to Anfield is rather interesting.
Just before he joined Arsenal, the former Barcelona man was touted with a move to Liverpool as Brendan Rodgers looked to replace Luis Suarez, though Brendan Rodgers ultimately had to make a move for Mario Balotelli.
So, we’re asking our Liverpool fans, should the club make a move for Alexis Sanchez if Coutinho departs?
